i thought it was going to be -- i won't mention the one because sometimes they treat me ok. about 4% of the time. [laughter] pres. trump: i said to a group, they will be apologizing today. i said, did they apologize? i didn't see an apology. that's ok. let me tell you, right from the beginning, troy boulderson, he is the guy. he is the guy that will do things. you will be surprised. they are talking about this blue wave. [booing] pres. trump: i don't think so. i don't think so. maxine waters is leading the charge. [booing] pres. trump: maxine. she is a real beauty. maxine. are you seriously? low iq person. maxine waters. she is leading the charge. all throughout -- like 100 years i guess, 125 years, whoever has the white house, that party tends to lose the midterms. i don't know why. maybe it is complacency. maybe you all fight so hard for the presidency.
you win, and you are complacent, but that was two years ago. i just said, why? we have the greatest economy in the history of our country. we have things that have never happened before. [cheering] pres. trump: look, if the democrats get in, they will raise your taxes, you will have crime all over the place, you will have able pouring across the border. why would that be a blue wave? i think it could be a red wave. really. i think it should be a red wave. [cheering] pres. trump: you have to get out and do it. you have to vote. you have to get out. they want to take away what we have given. they wanted -- have you ever seen this? you see nancy pelosi? who controls danny o'connor. whoever the hell that is. [laughter] pres. trump: danny o'connor, on his resume, put stuff that was not true. he did that.
you would've thought he was perry mason or something. a low-level person that did nothing. danny o'connor. that is a beauty. he is another beauty. this is what we are fighting. they will take away your taxes. they will destroy so many things we have given. by the way, we had obamacare repealed and replaced, except for one man who showed up at 2:00 and he voted no. what we have done on health care is incredible and we have kept your numbers way down. way below what they thought. we have taken away the individual mandate which is the single worst part. of obamacare. we have taken it away.
look, this has been some successful period for our country. our country has never, ever been like this. levels of enthusiasm, the likes of which nobody has ever seen. they have never seen it. not for me, in the polls. [cheering] pres. trump: so, we have a man that is going to fight for your. he will fight for ohio. he will be here for a long time. he will never disappoint you. i found that out from the people. he is not going to disappoint you. he is really smart. he is a really hard worker. troy bolderson, come on up. [cheering] >> thank you. thank you, everyone. it is a great honor to be here. before we get started, how about we wish the united states coast guard a happy 228th birthday? [cheering] and to all the men and women who
have served and have served, let's give them a roaring sound of applause. [cheering] [applause] thank you. for a guy from the county, an area i call the shaker heights of appalachia, it is truly a humbling experience to be on stage with president trump. [cheering] mr. president, welcome back to ohio. we are thankful to have you here. thank you to everyone here today. i am humbled by your support, it has been overwhelming. in 2016, ohio was the battleground for the presidential election. your countless volunteer hours,
your enthusiasm, and most importantly, your vote helped put donald j trump in the white house. [cheering] mr. balderson: on august 7, we need to do that again. i am counting on you again. i need your volunteer hours, your enthusiasm, and most importantly, i need your vote august 7. so that i can go to congress and represent you and fight alongside this good man, this great man, president trump, to make america great again. [cheering]
sen. balderson: in just a short period of time since his election, president trump has lower taxes, brought unemployment to an all-time low, and the stock market is roaring. i will fight alongside him to continue this economic success, i promise. [cheering] sen. balderson: to the seniors out there, including my mom and dad and they are here today, and the seniors across america, president trump will protect your social security and medicare, and i will fight alongside him to make sure the benefits you were promised are there for you. [cheering] sen. balderson: mr. president, we don't want to go back.
i am not tired of winning. [cheering] sen. balderson: my opponent has a different idea though. dishonesty daniel o'connor wants to repeal those middle-class tax cuts. [booing] sen. balderson: dishonest danny o'connor wants to take away your guns. [booing] sen. balderson: dishonest danny supports open borders and sanctuary cities. [booing] sen. balderson: dishonest danny o'connor will fight against the policies that are turning our country around. [booing] sen. balderson: and worst of all, dishonest danny o'connor will vote for nancy pelosi for speaker. [booing] sen. balderson: if you want someone who will fight for president trump, economic agenda, and is putting america back to work, then i need your help. and i need your vote on tuesday. i will win this election on
august 7. and go to congress to fight for ohio and for the great people of the 12th the district. -- of the 12th district. thank you all very much. thank you. god bless america. thank you, donald trump. [cheering] pres. trump: he means it. he means it. he means it. thank you, troy. thank you, troy. a vote for troy's opponent is a vote for open borders, which equals massive corruption. like they don't care about it. they don't care about the crime. they your military or your vet. -- vets. the new platform of the democrat party is to abolish ice and let's not worry about crime. oh, really? doesn't work that way. [booing] pres. trump: you know, when ms 13 seized the ice people, when
they come in, and ms 13 says we have problems. we have problems. ice is fantastic for this country. they are brave. they have a tough job. [cheering] pres. trump: and we are getting these gangs, we get them out of the country. one by one. [cheering] pres. trump: a vote for danny boy and the democrats is a vote to much criminals and drugs pour into our country and to let ms 13 run wild in our communities. you know what they do once they are there? we will protect our law enforcement. not just ice. all of our law enforcement. [cheering] pres. trump: republicans want a maximum, and we do, we want maximum border security and
respect for ice. respect for border patrol. respect for all of our great law enforcement. all of them. law enforcement officers. we have seen the horrors that happen when our laws are not enforced. for example, in the sanctuary state of california, air force veterans -- [booing] pres. trump: marilyn faris was viciously raped or murdered, and beaten to death with a hammer by an illegal alien with a long criminal history. should never have been in our country. including an arrest a week before he killed marilyn. this was somebody that should never have been allowed to be in our country. we are talking about thousands of people. we are talking about thousands and thousands of people. you could ask a jim jordan, that is all we work on. that is what we focus on. we are finally getting there. we will get there. we will get there. [cheering]
pres. trump: we want our country to be a sanctuary for law-abiding americans, not criminal aliens. [cheering] >> build that wall! build that wall! build that while! build that wall! pres. trump: every day the heroes of ice are tracking down the violent criminals, drug dealers, child predators which is a tremendous problem and the vicious gang members, all over the place, and we are holding them in jail or find them the hell out of our country. one or the other. [cheering] pres. trump: we just announced yesterday a record of
enforcement of the border. [cheering] pres. trump: not easy. it's not easy. you because our laws are so bad. they are so pathetic. catch and release. these a lottery. let's pick somebody out. -- oh, he is convicted of five murders, let him run through our country. what we're doing is crazy. how about chain migration. how about that? ♪ [booing] pres. trump: somebody brings his mother, his father, and, uncle, 15 times removed. he brings them all. i said the other day, the young
man, if you can call him not, or the young animal, i guess, who mowed down eight people -- you ever notice they never talk about the people that lose arms and legs? they talk about eight people died. but they don't say eight people died and many people lost their arms and legs and they will never be the same. they worked so hard, so incredible. this guy had 22 people come in with him. 22 people. he is in our justice system now. he has been there for about a year. it will take forever. we better get smart. we better get tough and smart. it'll take forever. court after court after court. then they end up making deals. if you want to have a border, if you want to stop the radical nancy pelosi and waters -- maxine waters, agenda, there is only one choice in this election. that is vote for troy balderson, he will help. he is going to help jim. he is going to help everybody. they are going to get the job
done. the fact is we need more republicans to people say we have a majority. we don't really have the majority in the senate. we have one person not voting, not around to vote. i don't know, he is not voting. we have 50. i will give you an example how tough it is. to get our great future justice cavanagh, i think he will get their too, but to get him approved, think of this, because we have one vote that will not be able to vote, unfortunately, to get to justice cavanagh and approved, we need 100% of the republicans. think of that. how bad is that? how do you get 100% of anything. i don't like trump, i don't like
our president, he destroyed my career. i only destroyed a career because they said bad things about me and you fight back and they go down the tubes and that's ok. a couple of them. [cheering] pres. trump: it's all right. i never mention names. i become much more diplomatic. in the old days, i would've mentioned names. i don't do that anymore. think of it. we need 100%, then the vice president, mike pence, a great guy, has to vote. [cheering] pres. trump: and has to raise his hand and we win. but, you are not going to have that vote most likely from your senator. but, it is one of those things. we will get him in. top yale law school, same thing with justice gorsuch. top at harvard. number one in his class. went to oxford. top student. this is what we want. we want great people, we want really top-of-the-line smart people here and i want people with the highest test scores. i like high test scores. i want them. i want people, so do you. we have somebody great in brett cavanagh. i think it is working out well.
we need 100% of the vote. we have a couple places where i won by a 30, 40 points. it could be they come vote for senators, democrats, could be. we will see what happens. on the assumption that they don't, because they do talk. a fuse a nicer things about me than any republican. a couple of them compare me to some of the greats. i'm talking about abe lincoln, on the state. -- honest abe. they say great things. i tell the people, i say, it is wonderful they say nice things but they will never give us the vote. we need the vote. say bad things about me but to give the vote. i am not just talking vote on justices.
i'm talking boats on a lot of other things including highways and infrastructure and the wall, add border security. i need their vote. we will never get their vote. the only way will get the vote is we need more republicans. you will see this country go down so fast. what we have done -- they even say, it really has been, as you say, amazing. it's been a miracle to a lot of people. i campaigned and i purposely did not mention they kind of numbers we are achieving. because i did not want to be accused of exaggeration.
by the fake news media. [booing] pres. trump: if i would have said 4.1% gdp, it would have been major headlines like -- by the way, it has gone higher. you can mark my words. [cheering] pres. trump: if i get the trade deficits down, bring them down, if i bring the trade deficits down, we could pick up three and four points in gdp. nobody says that. nobody says that. [cheering] pres. trump: they think we can't go any higher we can go much higher. we have to have good trade deals.
we are doing this despite horrible trade deals. the worst deals ever made in the history of our country. ever made. in the history of the world. nobody made deals where we give away our country to other countries. it is sheer stupidity. now these countries, because of tariffs, and i say that is ok, president obama, it was not his thing. [booing] frankly, it was not anybody's thing for the last 30 years. it was not anybody's thing. it is my thing. i love it. [cheering] pres. trump: european union, they want to make a deal. they are dying to make a deal. but for years, they told president obama, no, we have no interest in meeting her to have no interest in meeting. i guess they said that's ok. but they said that to me too. sir, we don't want to meet. we are happy with the deal. they made $150 billion faster. they should be happy. i said, i agree, you should not meet, you should not change the deal, but you have to. they said i don't want to meet. i said, ok, don't to meet. but as your cars come to the united states, mercedes, bmw, we are going to tax them 20% and we will do better. and then they said 12 minutes after it was announced, you have a call. i will not embarrass people's names. i like sean cloyd, ok? i will not mention his name. they did call and said i would like to meet. we have the makings of a deal. without that there was no chance. then i have senators coming another's and congressman.
i don't think i will ever hear from troy on this. they go, please, don't tax the stuff coming into our country. what they are doing to our country is incredible. we added $817 billion trade deficit among all countries over the last number of years. think of it. per year. $817 billion. that is a year. you think they are good trade deals? whoever negotiated those deals. a number they don't want to talk about but the number, 4.1 was great but we will go higher than that. once the trade deals. if i did not do anything with the trade deals, if i said nothing, we will let everybody continue to take our jobs, take our wealth, let them continue, i will bet our stock markets jumped 40% since i won. fighting do anything with trade,
let them continue to take advantage of us, i think you would go up 40%. eventually, you would have had to pay the piper. we are going to make our country so much richer than it has ever been. i don't like it when congressman and senators come up to me. i'm a free trader. i'm a fair trader. fair being more important. i'm a reciprocal trader. you know what reciprocal is? if they do it, we do it. i don't like it when a senator, who i like, and there are a number of them, or when a congressperson who i like comes into the white house, they want to see me, we would like you to stop treating these countries about it i say, we have a
tremendous massive deficit. we are losing a lot of money. it doesn't matter, sir. we believe in free trade. unlike, ok, they are charging us a 50% tariff, we are charging them a 20% tariff. do you think that is ok? no, sir. it is not. i said, what's free when they charge us and we can't charge them? what is going on here? [cheering] pres. trump: unbelievable. when we make a car and we send it to china, they charge us 25% tax. when they make a car, and send it to us, we charge them essentially nothing. it is 2.5%. basically they don't pay it. think of it. they paid 2.5%, meaning nothing. we pay 25%. on top of it, they don't want our cars. that is even worse. what they do as they say no, we don't want your cars. but they tell general motors, build the plants in china. i don't blame them. i don't blame china. i don't blame any of these countries. i have got good relationships. believe it or not, they like me. they understand. they can't believe themselves, they got away with it. they can't believe that they got away with it. but they have and we are turning it around. we're turning it around fast.
i don't like this. but the chinese market is down 27% in the last three or four months. i don't like that. because i really like president xi. i respect china greatly. it is incredible what they have done. but they have done it off our back. they have taken $500 billion a year for many years. $500 billion. we haven't really rebuilt china, and we rebuild. it is time we rebuild our own country now. [cheering] troy balderson is going to help me do that, right troy? ok, he said yes. if you said no, i'm out of here. he is going to help us. the leave me, he will be there. in the forefront. we have now created 3.9 million jobs. think of that. i would have never said a because of the figures back there. i would never have said it. can you imagine if i said that with the fake news? let's say we are campaigning.
nobody heard me say that. almost 4 million jobs. you have car plants moving into michigan, moving into ohio, moving into pennsylvania. massive, massive companies. moving into south carolina. moving into north carolina. they are all coming back. that means jobs. [cheering] pres. trump: and you know what? when i charge them, when i say, 20%, i will keep it down to a minimum, because i'm a nice person. it wipes out the deficit. we go positive p we make a lot of money. you know what they will do? they will not pay the 20%. too much. the higher i make it, the better
it is. they will come to ohio and build a plant because that way they pay nothing. right? they pay nothing. they will build their plant in the country. i went to the wharton school of finance, i was a very fine student. i will tell you, one of the great schools in the world, the wharton school of finance, one of the hardest schools in the world to get into. let me tell you, i went there. it is so basic, we charge them a lot, we put in a 20% or 25 percent tax, we take the 151, and now we make 100. we flipped it like $250 billion with one signature. what is going to happen? they are coming into the united states to build a their plans. don't even think about it, ok? they will not pay that tax. too much. more americans are now employed,
here is one of the greatest -- one of the best statistics ever. or americans are now employed than ever recorded before in our nations history. [cheering] pres. trump: think of that. we have more people employed, working today than the united states has ever had employed are working. think of that. isn't that incredible? that is like this little statement that they put out. they don't want you to hear this stuff. these rallies are very successful. they hate when i do them. although they like the ratings, i must say. they are torn. do we put them on and get great ratings? and let him say that cnn is a fake, or -- [cheering] pres. trump: or do we not put them on? they are very torn. it is often times i am getting ready to do my fake news with cnn and msnbc. msnbc is so corrupt. it is so disgusting.
so disgusting. [booing] pres. trump: i would say almost they are worse, they are almost worse. they are really a fake news group of people. here is the good news. the guys that we love, they are blowing them away in the ratings. [cheering] pres. trump: tucker carlson, steve, -- [cheering] pres. trump: so many others. they are blowing them away. oh, excuse me, i am us forgot, i would have been in trouble, the great lou dobbs. [cheering] pres. trump: but you see, oh, maria.
[cheering] pres. trump: i'm in trouble. i know i left out probably 10. but i did not really think i would be doing this. but they are blowing them away. cnn is down at the bottom of the total poll. msnbc is not even close to being next to these shows. so we are blowing them away. that's good. those at the people that love is. that is why we are going to win. we will win here. it is why i won my election, remember? three or four polls got it right. for the most part, they want to convince you that trump has no chance that you don't bother voting to you go to a movie, come home. the problem is you never went to the movie. you went out and voted. beautiful. [cheering] pres. trump: right? you went out and voted.
darling, let's go to a movie. because cnn, fake news says trump will not win. because there is no path to 270. there isn't. there is a path to 306, but not to 270. [cheering] pres. trump: i was saying the other night, remember? pennsylvania. i was ahead by a lot. we only had two points it was like 9:30 p.m. they refused to say that i won pennsylvania. if i lost every single remaining vote, it was impossible to catch. i kept saying, wait a minute, there is so many -- only so many votes left. we would have to do three times that number. then what happened is wisconsin came in. and we won the state of wisconsin. and we won the state of michigan. and then they finally announced pennsylvania and you know why? they could not stand it. they are so dishonest. these are among the most dishonest human beings he will
ever meet. [cheering] [booing] pres. trump: in the month of july alone, we added nearly 40,000 new manufacturing jobs. we have created nearly .5 million manufacturing jobs. your member what they used to say? there are no manufacturing jobs. they don't exist anymore. they are no good. really? how do you make things without manufacturing jobs? i guess i figure you will buy it from the competitors, right? no. we are doing manufacturing jobs and numbers of people have not seen before. half a million, almost, in fact probably by the time i leave this room can they will be over half a million. [cheering] pres. trump: our economy is soaring. and we are creating opportunity for everyone.
the unemployment rate for americans without a high school diploma, this came out two days ago, and i figure, i might as well tell you because they will not say it. without a diploma, high school, is at the lowest level ever recorded. how good is that? [cheering] pres. trump: economic growth last quarter hit 4.1. you almost that. you know this too. remember, i used to say, because they always voted democrat, the african-american unemployment rate has achieve the lowest level ever recorded in history. [cheering] pres. trump: i have never heard them say that. have you ever heard them say that? that is the advantage of having something where people are listening. just listen. then what they do, do you ever notice on monday morning or sunday morning, they will take a long flowing statement and they will cut it out a few words in the middle and i say, man, they
really changed the meaning of what i was saying. these are really bad people. the hispanic unemployment rate is at the lowest level in history. the asian unemployment rate has also achieved the lowest level ever recorded. [cheering] pres. trump: the women's unemployment rate, i am so sorry, women, i have let you down, i have let the women down. even though i won the women, i won the women. you know, when those numbers came, how is it possible? i never heard i was going to win the women. i said i think the women like me. my wife, the first lady, said, the women like you. they do like me. and i like them. but i said how did we win the women? we won the women. that was a surprise to a lot of people. not if you have been to the rally. look at all those pink posters. [cheering]
pres. trump: thank you. the women's unemployment rate is not the lowest ever recorded, it is only the lowest level and 65 years. i'm sorry. i'm sorry 65 years. but we think by the next report, we should have lowest in history. there -- of the veterans, i love the veterans, the unemployment rate. it reached its lowest level in nearly 20 years. almost 3.9 million americans have been lifted off food stamps. that means they are getting
income, are working, living their life, getting jobs, they pay much more than what they can make any other way. that is some number. that is a big number. all for food stamps. our new workforce initiative will deliver job training to more than 4 million americans and it is growing. and even though it is 110 degrees in this crazy room, -- [cheering] pres. trump: if you can take it, i can take it. [cheering] pres. trump: in all fairness, to the hvac, engineers and contractors, this room was not designed quite for this crowd. and you people are hot. [cheering] pres. trump: if anybody wants to leave, leave. there is a lot of people who want to get into but don't leave. it is rather hot.
here is the good news -- you walk out and have lost 10 pounds. you say, that is good. that beats going to a gym. it is hot. so much for my brand-new beautiful suit. [laughter] pres. trump: now that we have the best economy in the history of our country, this is the time to straighten out the worst trade deals ever made. by any country on earth at any time. ohio alone lost over 200,000 manufacturing jobs. since china joined the to beauty of. the wto, wto, a total disaster. for decades, our politicians allowed other countries to steal our jobs, plunder our wealth, and loot our economy. that is what they did. i don't think for the most part they did it consciously. they just didn't know what the hell they were doing. they had no idea. then you have people who think it is wonderful when they close up a plant in ohio, move the plant to mexico or some other place, lose your jobs, they make the product in mexico or some other country, send it back into our country, tax-free. those days are ending. tax-free. [cheering] pres. trump: right? no good. no. we don't like that. we want our people. did you see a certain gentleman
the other day said, donald trump does not take care of foreign workers? i said, he's right. [laughter] pres. trump: that was charles koch. who is actually a nice guy. they are members of my clubs. david and charles koch. he said donald trump does not take a foreign workers. i said, he's right. i don't want to get into an argument. he's right. i want to take care of the american workers. i want to be america first. ok? [cheering] pres. trump: america's economic surrender ended today the day i took office. now after years of rebuilding foreign countries, we are finally rebuilding our country. [cheering] pres. trump: the great patriot
from ohio, and he was indeed, and he was actually a great president, certainly from an economic standpoint, he was assassinated. people don't realize, william mckinley from ohio was a great president. he understood the crucial importance of tariffs in maintaining a very strong country. people that followed him went down as a great presidents because one in particular, as you know, it is he was created. mckinley said, we ought to take care of our own nation and our industry's first we have to take care of our nation for spirit we want to help other people. but we don't want to help other people that are rich and not have them reimburse us. it is so foolish. we are taking care of their military, we are taking care of their -- of everything. a lot of these deals were made many years ago when they were weak and struggling to win ever changed them. we never change them. they are still the same deal.
we are changing them now. [cheering] and troy balderson is going to be helping so much, things to our pro-america economic policies -- one of the things i am most proud of -- american steel is making one of the biggest comebacks anybody has ever seen. [applause] pres. trump: for any industry. a great steel company. the steel mills were closing up, nucor has announced and $85 million upgrade in marion. another company announced a $150
million steel mill in cuyahoga heights. gsw steel is restarting the furnace and investing $500 million in mingo junction and cleveland cliffs and announced a $700 million plant in toledo. [applause] pres. trump: united states steel is building or renovating or improving over seven new plants. they never thought they would see a day when this would happen. and this all happened in a short time. because we have stopped the dumping. if they want to dump, that is fine, but they have to pay a 25% tax. it is amazing the impact that has on people who want to rip off and destroy our industries. thank you, i appreciate that. we have also taken historic action to protect our amazing farmers. i reached a historic agreement with the european union, we
talked about it before, to reduce barriers to american grown products and increase the purchase of american soybeans. the prices are starting to go up. soybean prices are starting to go up. we are standing up to china. we will get along with china, but we are standing up because it has been unfair. we have authorized up to $12 billion to help american farmers during this time, where china is targeting the american farmer. because china is smart and they know american farmers love donald trump, and they say, what can we do to stop donald trump? because he is the guy, he got it right. he is bringing the wealth back to the united states. and china does not like it. they are spending a fortune on
public relations and advertisements, you ever see them? look at who is paying for them. and in other countries. speaking of china, it has come out that the democratic leader and the leader of the russia investigation -- [booing] pres. trump: dianne feinstein had a chinese driver for 20 years and she is leading the russia investigation. no, she is leading the russia witchhunt. a democrat inspired witchhunt. that is something, isn't that something? dianne feinstein. how come china never spies on us? you should ask people what is going on. it is a lot of people. you have to stop it, we have to stop meddling, everybody from attacking us, but there are a lot, russia is there, china is there -- we are doing well with north korea to my but they are
probably there. we have to stop everybody. but think of that. i like dianne feinstein, i have to tell you. but i don't like that she had a chinese spy driving her and she did not know it. she says to me, what did you know about this? give me a break. come on, folks. every day -- and with china not doing so well, it has gotten worse, i guarantee you could -- i guarantee you. if there is any meddling or problems, it will be really big now because we are taking our wealth and jobs back, we are opening up and setting new records. we are keeping our promise. we have eliminated a record number of job killing regulation.
and that is so true. ohio is going to like this. we have ended the war on clean coal, our miners are back to work. republicans passed the biggest tax cuts and reform in american history. we have saved our family farms from the estate tax also known as the death tax, and also we have saved small businesses,
small farms, small businesses will not be paying the death tax anymore. [applause] pres. trump: as i said, we have repealed the core of obamacare, the individual mandate is gone. that is where you pay a tremendous amount of money for the privilege of not having to pay to buy terrible, horrible, health-care that is overpriced. we have given you a lot of health-care plans to choose from through associating health plans. we are giving businesses the greatest ability they have ever had to join forces to buy much better health insurance for less money, including across state lines. [applause] pres. trump: and we have just added and introduced a brand-new role to offer renewable plans it could save patients 50% or more over obamacare. it was repealed and replaced, other than one vote. you know what else we did, which i think is really great, it is really something, when you are really sick, you go right to try. you are reading about a potential cure, but 10 more years of experiments, food and drug. we have right to try now. people sign an agreement for no liability. i know people who have traveled all over the world to try and solve a health problem. right to try, it passed. you would not think it would be
tough, but the health care companies had a problem, the pharmaceutical companies had a problem, because everybody was worried everybody would be sued. i said, you sign an agreement, you don't sue people. people want to get better and have a right to try. it was a very hard thing. they have been trying to get it for 40 years. i signed it into law three years ago, right to try. so if something you read about looks promising, you don't have to wait 12 years. one of the reasons you couldn't use it, they said we don't want to use it because maybe it will hurt somebody. the people are going to die, they want to try it. it might not work, and it might work. it is also a great test medically. so right to try, i am so proud of that one.
to restore our security, we increased defense spending to $700 billion this year and $716 billion next year. we are doing things we have never done before. [applause] pres. trump: we also had approved $6 billion for opioids, it is down 20%. it is a tough fight. thanks to our $2 billion investment in new armored vehicle, workers at the legendary tank plant in lima, ohio are now back on the job churning out abrams tanks. do you like that? abrams tanks.
they are churning them out. the great thing about what we are doing with $700 billion and $716 billion -- far less important in this case, because there is nothing we have to protect, as important as our military, but we are also providing massive numbers of new jobs because we build all of that equipment in the united states. [applause] pres. trump: that is the one case where the jobs are not as important, but we are doing it all here. i am proud to report we have given our service numbers their largest pay raise in over a decade. [applause] pres. trump: i have also directed the pentagon to begin the process of creating a six branch of the u.s. armed forces called the space force, very important. [applause] pres. trump: that is going to be great. so much is happening in space. i'm not just talking about mars and the moon, i'm talking about tremendous defense capabilities, offensive capability in space. we are going to do the space force.
we passed a landmark v.a. accountability law that everybody said we could not get past. 40 years they have been trying to do it, now is a bad government worker abuses a great veteran, we turned to them and say, you are fired, get the hell out of here. [applause] pres. trump: you are fired. we also passed veterans choice, so if our veterans cannot get care from the v.a. in a timely manner, they have the right to go and see immediately a private doctor and get taken care of. [applause] pres. trump: they've been working on that one for 45 years, we got it passed. we are going to get the wall
passed, don't worry about it. the obstructionists, the democrats are obstructionists. they are lousy politicians, they have horrible, stupid policies. let's get rid of law enforcement, get rid of the military, not take care of veterans. all of these things. they are haters. they have tremendous hatred. but they will do anything they can to obstruct or resist. their word is resist. i used to see that word and say, why are they doing that? if it is good for the country, why are they resisting? they want to resist. i removed the u.s. from the horrible iran nuclear deal and summary things have happened. -- and so many things have happened. i also recognized the capital of israel and five months later we opened the american embassy in jerusalem. [applause] pres. trump: instead of apologizing for america, we are standing up for america, we are standing up for the heroes who protect our country.
[applause] pres. trump: and we are proudly standing up for our national anthem. thank you. [applause] >> [chanting] usa, usa! pres. trump: but to continue our incredible success, we must elect more republicans and we must elect troy balderson, we have to elect him. [applause] pres. trump: get your friends, get your neighbors, get your family and get out and vote for troy on a tuesday. loyal citizens, great people like you helped build this country, and together we are taking back this country. we are returning power to where
it belongs, to the american people. [applause] pres. trump: from columbus to the queen city, cincinnati, where i worked a long time. a good place, the queen city. from dublin to cleveland and from toledo to mansfield, ohio has always been the home of the red-blooded american patriots, strong people, smart people, real workers, people i love. [applause] pres. trump: this state is the home of the proud, and we are, we are the home of the proud. the home of families, farmers, miners, aviators, ashen us. -- and astronauts. ohio is the home of everything good.
ohio is where the wright brothers invented the airplane. and where annie oakley got her gun. [applause] pres. trump: ohio is the state that gives us american legends and american heroes like thomas edison, neil armstrong, and john glenn. we stand on the shoulders of generations of american patriots who knew how to work, knew how to fight, and knew how to win. you know how to win. just like them, we are going to keep on working, were going to keep on fighting, and we are going to keep on winning, we are going to win so much, you will get so tired of winning.
[applause] pres. trump: you see what is happening. we will keep it going a long time. we will never give up, we will never given, and we will never back down. we will never, ever stop fighting for our families, our freedom or our great american flag. [applause] pres. trump: because we are americans, and our hearts bleed red, white, and blue. we are one people, one family, and one glorious nation under god. [applause] pres. trump: and together as a nation, we will make america wealthy again. we will make america strong again. we will make america safe again. and we will make america great again. thank you, ohio. thank you.
